Pennsylvania -- Assessment of the Pennsylvania Housing Research Center Alternative Code

The Pennsylvania Housing Research Center (PHRC) has created a proposed alternative path for complying with the energy efficiency provisions of the2000 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) or the 2000 International Residential Code (IRC) for residential buildings. The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry requested that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) evaluate the PHRC proposal to determine whether it meets or exceeds the energy efficiency requirements of the IECC. Under DOE's direction, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory reviewed and assessed the PRHC proposal.
